I would highly recommend the falls tour with Alberto's for any family that enjoys the outdoors and would like to learn how to ride horses. There was a little excercise involved with the stairs at the falls, and in riding the horses, but nothing kids cannot handle. The guide(s), owner and horses are great, and the trail is scenic with...

my family, including our 8yr old daughter LOVED this tour not only for the horse ride but becuase it was a great experience overall. We love the fact that it is family owned and run. Everyone was soooo nice, professional, and understanding. My daughter had a blast. Im an animal lover and was hesitant at first but this family really... More

We took our 2 year old on the horseback ride. It was so much fun. She rode on the horse with me and loved every minute. You ride through big open fields, then through a creek bed and a tiny trail (pretty exciting for a novice like myself). Then you ride up a paved road where you get off to... More

This was a great tour! So easy to find - walking distance from downtown. Alberto is super friendly, as is his son and nephew who took us on our tour. Their horses are so sweet and good natured. You can tell they are treated lovingly. Their two dogs also came on the tour and were hysterical - chasing cars and... More

Ride was perfect. We rode on a horse trail near the national park. Excellent views of volcano and wildlife. Plenty of photo oppurtunities.

My three (3) daughters and I enjoyed the ride to the waterfall. Edson, our guide was more that gracious. I had a hard time getting back up the nearly 500 stairs from the waterfall but Edson never left me behind. We took the first tour in the day and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Thank you!

My partner and I had a terrific experience in May 2014. We showed up in the morning and were the only two guests on the tour. We were greeted by our guide, Joel, who introduced us to Homer and Nika, our horses. The tour took us through several pastures and fields, through the jungle, and up the hill to the... More

The best horses, the best host, the best value. This one gets 6 stars! I would highly recommend to ANYONE going to La Fortuna to go to Alberto's. And if the horse-riding isn't wonderful enough, just hanging out with their adorable dogs is the cherry on top

This is an incredible way to see Arenal and the La Fortuna Waterfall. The ride was leisurely and informative, with the guide taking photos for us and pointing out wildlife along the trail. The waterfall was gorgeous, bring your swim suit so you can swim and cool off! Be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen and water, as the trip... More

My husband and I had a terrific experience with Alberto’s Horses during our stay in La Fortuna in April 2014. We went early in the morning and ended up being the only ones in the group. Our horses (Benjamin and Chaps) were very well mannered and our guide (Edson) was extremely friendly and did everything he could to ensure we... More
